Synopsis of My Happy Marriage

Now, let me introduce you to the captivating story of My Happy Marriage. Our unlucky heroine, Miyo Saimori, was born into an arranged marriage without love. After her mother's passing, her father brought in his mistress and their daughter, Kaya, turning Miyo into nothing more than a servant. To make matters worse, while Kaya inherited the family's psychic abilities, Miyo was left without any remarkable skills—a truly unremarkable daughter.

For years, Miyo endured being treated like trash, learning to keep her head down, hide her pain, and obediently follow orders. So, it's no wonder she agrees to marry Kiyoka Kudou, a military captain rumored to be so cruel that he's scared off all his potential wives to date. From a painful upbringing to a painful marriage, that's what Miyo expects her future to hold. But brace yourself for a surprise twist!

Contrary to her expectations, Miyo's new husband turns out to be incredibly kind-hearted. What awaits Miyo is a truly blissful and joyful marriage. It's a story of personal growth, healing, and the unexpected paths that love can take. Get ready to be swept off your feet by the beautiful tale of My Happy Marriage.
